JUVÉDERM® XC is a dermal filler that helps to replace the Hyaluronic Acid your skin has lost; adding volume to smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Everyone will notice… but no one will know!
Our skin changes as we age. Over time, wrinkles and folds form and the natural volume of youthful skin begins to fade. However, this can be prevented with JUVÉDERM® XC – an FDA approved injectable gel that is a “next-generation” dermal filler. This smooth consistency gel aids in restoring your skin’s volume and smoothens facial wrinkles and folds. It helps get rid of “smile lines” and “parentheses” (nasolabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
JUVÉDERM® XC is made of Hyaluronic Acid, which is a substance in your skin that adds volume and hydration. Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring agent found on your skin. As you age, you start to lose Hyaluronic Acid, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds. Juvederm™ is eased under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel that everyone will notice.
With JUVÉDERM® XC, we are able to utilize the ArqueDerma® Artistic Restoration Lift, which provides natural, more dramatic results not achievable using conventional filler techniques offered by most clinics. Using precepts found in physics and architectural engineering, the ArqueDerma® technique effectively extends the use of dermal filler by 40% to achieve unprecedented, longer lasting results.
Unlike conventional volume replacement techniques, the ArqueDerma® technique utilizes JUVÉDERM® XC as strategic relocation vectors to redistribute and direct the patient’s own tissue toward the facial hollows that have formed. Using the ArqueDerma® technique, our RN collects facial volume that has dropped downward, and artistically redirects it to create a more youthful, aesthetically pleasing look that reveals and embellishes your natural beauty.
JUVÉDERM® XC is available in two formulations, JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC and JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC. Eleven 19 Medical’s highly experienced nurses will determine which formulation is right for you.
JUVÉDERM® XC achieves its smooth consistency due to an innovative manufacturing process called HYLACROSS™ technology. HYLACROSS™ gives JUVÉDERM® XC its unique smooth-gel properties as well as robust gel structure that holds up over time.
JUVÉDERM® XC injectable gel is the first Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler that has been FDA approved and is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.
